ABOUT SAXOGY

Our team consists of motivated and innovative employees who draw on knowledge from more than 20 years of electronics development. Changing fields of activity ensure a permanent development of individual skills. We pay attention to a balanced proportion of both experienced and young engineers and technicians in order to meet the current needs of our customers at all times. The professional competences of our employees cover all necessary fields of competence for the processing of your demanding tasks. Furthermore, we have a network of partners to deal with more complex topics.

Saxogy deliberately operates at the historic Saxon industrial location Chemnitz and was the result of the merger of several engineers and technicians who had previously acted independently. A large part of the team has been working together for more than 20 years. Due to the constantly growing scope of the tasks to be processed, a continuous expansion of the team was necessary. That is why we laid the foundation stone for the foundation of Saxogy GmbH at the beginning of 2017. Today we can count small and medium-sized companies and internationally operating large corporations to our customer base, who are both users and manufacturers of power electronic solutions.

CHEMNITZ, SAXONY, GERMANY

SAXOGY has chosen the traditional location Chemnitz as its headquarters. A brief look at the eventful history of this unique city is intended to illustrate the reasons for this.

The first documentary mention of Chemnitz dates back to 1143, which shows that a few years earlier some monks founded the Benedictine monastery of St. Mary at “locus Kamenicz” with the permission of Emperor Lothar III. Certainly those clergymen did not know that their settlement would develop into one of the wealthiest and most important German cities in the following centuries. The city owed this rise primarily to its industry, which was to become market-determining, especially in the mechanical engineering and textile sectors.

The granting of the bleaching privilege in 1357, which made the town the centre of regional linen weaving, was an early but decisive milestone for this upswing. At about the same time, metal processing began in Chemnitz. Despite some city fires, wars and the plague raging in Europe, which also struck Chemnitz several times, the city continued to prosper and was to experience its greatest boom with the onset of the industrial revolution in the first half of the 19th century. With the “Sächsische Maschinenfabrik” or the “Wanderer Werke”, only two production sites are to be mentioned here, whose products were exported worldwide and co-founded the city’s reputation as an industrial metropolis. In addition, the number of inhabitants grew steadily due to the constantly increasing demand for labour and it was assumed that Chemnitz would inevitably rise to become a city of millions. In addition to the large number of factories, the city also had banks, theatres, a university, railway stations, an airport and a stock exchange. The city had gained so much importance over the years that it was even classified by the Allies as decisive for the war during the Second World War, which sealed the end of the Saxon metropolis.

Development stagnated with the onset of the global economic crisis, which then came to an abrupt end with the war and the large-scale bombing on 5 March 1945, during which almost 95% of the city centre was destroyed.

During the time of the GDR, the city could not return to its old prosperity. Since German reunification a thoroughly positive development can be observed and SAXOGY feels obliged to continue to shape it. In and around Chemnitz, areas are being created in which more and more industry is settling. Research and development centres are growing especially in the vicinity of the Technical University.

Committed to the wonderful tradition of the city, we want to contribute to this upswing. That is why we have consciously chosen the Chemnitz location to manufacture innovative and high-quality products that meet the highest demands of our customers.
